"The world is a book..." - March challenge

A bit late on the update, but this is the finished product from the March challenge "Mixed Media".

It started with painting blue waves on a canvas, then I stuck various selections from a world map - countries I have visited and ones I wish to travel to in the near future.

The map is a out of proportion as there are large areas missing and I wanted to include a quote. I found the following by St Augustine: "The world is a book and those who do not travel read only one page".

Once the paint had dried I sewed the routes I have travelled in red. I intended to sew planned routes in green, but the wooden frame of the canvas made it quite difficult to do so I left it with just the red.

Now I'm getting on with April's challenge: "Language" - watch this space!
